New York Burglary Lawyer

Every burglary charge involves a unique set of circumstances. It is important to consult with a skilled New York burglary lawyer to plan the most successful strategy for your case.

There are many common defenses for people who are facing charges of burglary. In criminal cases, the defendant’s guilt must be proven “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Therefore, an experienced criminal defense lawyer will use proven strategies to undermine the prosecutor’s arguments and evidence.


One of the most important things an experienced New York burglary lawyer can do when an individual is charged with a burglary is to properly investigate all of the allegations and the facts involved in the case. An attorney can look to determine where on a property somebody was. An attorney can look to determine what actually was the crime that the prosecution is accusing an individual of intending to commit. Many times we have been able to show that an individual did not enter any particular location with an intent to commit the crime, even though one did ultimately happen.

And under those circumstances, an attorney can successfully negotiate to a much lesser charge.
